It is well located, 5 km from the financial center of Luxembourg (worlds 8th biggest), the European institutions in Kirchberg and the town center.

Sandweiler opens the doors to the world for its residents. With an international airport on its doorstep, major motorway connections linking to Germany, France and Belgium and Luxembourg international railway station only 5 minutes drive.

The commune is surrounded by forests.

Traffic is a big problem for the commune, since it is on a main road with Germany, and many commuters cause traffic jams in the morning. The traffic problems have been made worse by the provision of bus lanes, which have reduced the available space for automobiles.
